On November 8th, members of the Saponi Chapter of the Order of the Arrow came together to provide leadership training to Boy Scouts of the Shakori District.
The event, held New Hope Presbyterian Church, is aimed at all Boy Scout youth leaders and is designed to provide them basic leadership skills in order to lead their patrols and troops.
Thank you to all the volunteers who made this event special.

We are lucky in that this video was put together by our lodge’s VC of communications. As a result, Occoneechee Lodge, including some of our own chapter’s brothers feature in it!
